I have a power strip with my tv, cable box, printer, air pump, led light, desk lamp. and sometimes my laptop and it's never been an issue

Make sure it has a surge protector (think they're all standard but just in case...).

Theres no differnece between plugging in your equipment into a powerstrip or the wall, none. The strip protects an incoming surge, not an outgoing.
GFCI is the only way to protect your equipment and your house from anything happening.

There are the inexpensive surge "protectors" and at Staples, where I work, we never even recommend them for anything of importance. There is equal chance of frying let's say...a laptop plugged into the wall, and into those cheapy things.
